During my time in the Community Media Lab today, I researched the new 4-by-4 plan recently released by the Michigan Department of Community Health to prevent and reduce obesity rates. I’ve learned of some pretty shocking statistics that I am going to include in my upcoming article.
As part of the plan, health officials are encouraging Michigan residents to have their Body Mass Index checked. A healthy range is between 18.5 and 24.9, 25 -29.9 is overweight and over 30 is obese.
I’m curious, has anyone ever had their BMI checked? If so, would you like to share any information regarding the result? Were you in a healthy range? If not, are you using the results to refine your lifestyle?
